IGP area (country wine) in the Spanish region of Andalusia; see there.

The autonomous region in the south of Spain (Spanish: Andalucía) covers 87,583 km² and is divided into the eight provinces of Almería, Cádiz, Córdoba, Granada, Huelva, Jaén, Málaga and Sevilla. It is surrounded to the east by the region of Murcia and to the north by the regions of Extremadura and Castilla-La Mancha. In Spain's oldest wine region, the Phoenicians founded the harbour town of Gadir (Cádiz) as early as 1,100 BC and exported wine. Even during the 700-year reign of the Moors until the end of the 15th century, wine continued to be produced here to a limited extent, but mainly sultanas.


The Moors transformed the area into a large garden and it was referred to as "paradise on earth"....
